Our first bananas :)

Postby MrC » Fri Jul 29, 2011 3:40 am

Due to the floods we haven't eaten bananas for over 6 months despite living in the banana growing capital of the world. In the supermarket they are rather shockingly about $10-12 a kilo at the moment!

We have however managed to grow these fine specimens in our back garden:

The funny looking thing is the flower which I had never seen till I moved here. It normally dangles off the bottom of the bunch of bananas.

Now I just have to dream until they go yellow :) .

Wow, they're fab, Mr CM! :wine: I can't recall the last time I bought bananas - they've been about $15 a kilo for that long! Enjoy. :)

Fantastic!!

I've never seen the flower either, despite seeing fields and fields of banana trees. Having said that, the bananas in said fields were always covered in blue plastic bags.
